New Express tolerant high oleic sunflower hybrid added to Nuseed sunflower lineup for 2024, building on success of previous game-changers.
Nuseed is adding to its high oleic sunflower lineup, announcing the prelaunch of N4H490 E. The hybrid contains an advanced downy mildew gene that Nuseed Sunflower Breeder Jeremy Klumper says should bring some real robustness along with the chemistry that Nuseed is using to change the game in high oleic Express tolerant sunflower.
“We’ve brought together some really nice plant health traits, yield potential and upper end oil content on this product,” Klumper says. “N4H490 E will really add a robustness to our portfolio that will offer extra value to customers.”
Klumper says N4H490 E will be best suited from Texas all the way up to southern North Dakota but could have some use in central parts of the state if a grower is able to plant early enough.
